Telcel America, a TracFone subsidiary that operates under T-Mobile's network, has announced some changes to the different prepaid plans they offer. Among the changes they made, the MVNO has added a new $25 plan, lowered the price on three plan options, and removed the $45 plan option. In more detail, here are the changes the MVNO has made:

  • $20 weekly plan (Unchanged) - includes unlimited talk, text and data with first 2GB at 4G LTE speeds ($18 with auto pay)
  • $25 monthly plan (New) - includes unlimited talk and text
  • $30 monthly plan (Previously at $35) - includes unlimited talk, text and data with first 1GB at 4G LTE speeds ($28.50 with auto pay)
  • $40 monthly plan (Previously at $55) - includes unlimited talk, text and data with first 4GB at 4G LTE speeds ($37.50 with auto pay)
  • $45 monthly plan (No longer available) - includes unlimited talk, text and data with first 2GB at 4G LTE speeds
  • $55 monthly plan (Previously at $60) - includes unlimited talk, text and data with first 10GB at 4G LTE speeds ($49.50 with auto pay)
  • $60 monthly plan (New) - includes unlimited talk, text and inlimited, unthrottled data 
Once the allotted high speed data is reached, the data speed is reduced to 2G or around 64Kbps until the next cycle. The plans also come with voice, text, MMS and data roaming in Mexico. Each plan also includes unlimited calls to mobile phones in Mexico, Canada, China, and India. It also includes unlimited calls to international landline numbers.

    1. That wording does say it uses AT&T data roaming.

      Does it?

    2. Telcel America roams in Mexico on Telcel. In the US it uses T-Mobile only, never AT&T.

    4. Voice, SMS, MMS and data roaming in Mexico. Telcel branded feature phones have voice and SMS roaming in the US. Smartphones and BYOP do not roam in the US.

  3. As someone who is planning a month-long trip to Mexico later this year, how does Telcel America compare with T-Mobile Postpaid? Which of the two should I take with me to Mexico?

    1. Both offer unlimited calling, messaging and data with high speed data up to plan limits while roaming in Mexico. If all you want it for is use in Mexico, Telcel America seems the better choice as it offers basically identical Mexican roaming features at a much lower price than T-Mobile postpaid.

  4. That $20 plan would've been pretty appealing, if only it lasted the entire month.
